Interacting with blockchain networks is still unwieldy — a barrier to entry that is high enough to deter most passive users and hold back mass adoption. This is the exact problem that Comet, a web browser wallet that enables users to run dapps on the VeChainThor (VTHO) blockchain, is hoping to solve. How we’re bringing blockchain […]
A lot of questions have surrounded the Steem (STEEM) blockchain after Steemit, Inc., the company behind the open-source blogging dapp steemit.com, laid off 70% of its staff amid the ongoing crypto bear market. Despite the gloomy outlook, one dapp on the Steem blockchain is rapidly gained momentum: Steem Monsters, a crypto collectibles game that describes itself as what you get when […]
The Daily curates stories from the eclectic and often bizarre world of Bitcoin.

According to a report from Dapp.com, dApps had about 1.5 million users over the course of 2018, the first full year they were measured. The most active dApp category across platforms was gaming, followed by betting. Of the 1.5 million total users of dApps across platforms, nearly 800,000 were on Ethereum. The Ethereum dApp ecosystem
Bitcoin engineer-turned-instructor Jimmy Song has said that seven months after Joseph Lubin announced a public bet with him concerning the future of Ethereum, the ConsenSys CEO is yet to put his money where his mouth is.

Ethereum may have caught the world’s attention but it needs to answer fundamental questions before being able to deliver on its promise.
On Thursday, Justin Sun, the founder of TRON, said that the network supports more than 50 decentralized applications (dApps) and is on track to reach 80 dApps in the short-term. #TRON now has more than 50+ Dapps. 80+ we are coming! #TRX $ TRX — Justin Sun (@justinsuntron) December 21, 2018 The statement of Sun follows

Social blockchain platform Steem, home to the Steemit social network, has been added to dApp (decentralized application) tracking website stateofthedapps.com and now sits proudly next to Ethereum, EOS, and POA, on the site’s “Rankings by Platform” page. And we got fancy #Steem statistics as well 🧐 pic.twitter.com/cK3BmEMK3u — State of the DApps (@StateOfTheDApps) December 17,
EOS (EOS), the blockchain platform known for its delegated proof-of-stake (DPoS) consensus model, has added nearly 200 decentralized applications (dapps) and around 500,000 users in the last five months. However, according to Chinese crypto media outlet 8BTC, which cites data from research firm Peckshield, 63% of the accounts on the EOS blockchain are currently inactive. “[Data] shows [that] among […]
With Ethereum’s launch in 2015 came a flurry of excitement over the future potential of smart contracts.
Utilizing a more flexible scripting language than Bitcoin, the platform’s decentralized applications (DApps) were touted by proponents as unlocking a plethora of formerly untapped use cases for the blockchain. From tokenized assets and blockchain-based legal contracts to healthcare records and supply chain tracking, DApps are going to remold traditional industries in their image, solve bottlenecks and revolutionize enterprise inefficiencies out of existence.
More than three years later, and we’re still waiting for the revolution.
Arguably the most important contribution of Ethereum is the real-world implementation and accessibility of smart contracts. From smart contracts follow decentralized applications or “dApps,” which enable common users to interact with financial and other purposes of the blockchain without necessarily needing to be cryptocurrency savvy. So many smart contracts and dApps have been launched on

One of the top markets regulators in the United States said yesterday that he believes smart contract developers should in some instances be held liable when their blockchain applications are used in conjunction with illegal activities. Brian Quintenz, a commissioner at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), made this statement on Monday at the GITEX

Ethereum Classic (ETC) is currently the only Turing Complete blockchain that will run on Proof of Work (PoW) forever. It has a limited supply of coins, just like Bitcoin (BTC). Moreover, just like Bitcoin (BTC) it does not have a known founder or an inside team that influence every decision. Its competitors, EOS (EOS) and Ethereum (ETH) have a lot more Dapps and market recognition. This is because they have a team that can influence every decision of those blockchains to their advantage. Once they have had their fun with Ethereum (ETH) and Eos (EOS), they will move to the next centralized project. We have seen this happen before. For instance, Dan Larimer, the founder of EOS (EOS) previously founded Steemit and Bitshares. Popular exchanges, Bittrex and Poloniex have recently removed Bitshares from their exchanges.

As developers express concerns over the centralized nature of dApp development and deployment on Ethereum (ETH), dApp popularity on the Ethereum Classic (ETC) blokchain has just doubled in two months. Ethereum Classic (ETC) has taken a more practical approach to dApp development compared to Ethereum (ETH), one that is more focused on development and less on fundraising. Instead of hosting a large number of shady ICOs, Ethereum Classic (ETC) has encouraged direct dApp deployment on Ethereum Classic (ETC).
Opera (OPRA), a browser built on the Blink engine and growing competitor of Google Chrome, announced this week that it has partnered with Ledger Capital, a blockchain and cryptocurrency research and investment firm, to explore the development of decentralized applications (dApps) for the Opera browser platform. According to the announcement, Opera plans to develop an array of applications on […]
Mainstream adoption of decentralized applications (dapps) remains elusive. Most projects are still in their infancy stages and those finding early success are still mostly related to cryptocurrencies. With the exception of games like CryptoKitties, the top Ethereum dapps are still focused on crypto trading with the likes of IDEX and ForkDelta taking up the bulk of the transactions on the network.
This is partly because of how entrenched the popular conventional apps are in users’ routines.
Jackson Palmer, an Adobe product developer and the creator of Dogecoin (DOGE), has recently begun encouraging developers in the cryptocurrency community to find manners in which to convert centralized systems to decentralized applications (dApps). However, due to the fact that decentralized applications and systems are much less efficient in processing information in comparison to centralized platforms, […]
Nouriel Roubini, a widely recognized economist and a professor at Stern School, has said that the decline in the value of Ethereum was expected due to its lack of active decentralized applications (dApps). He said: “No wonder Ethereum is collapsing. 75% of DApps are crypto-kitties, scammy Ponzi pyramid schemes & Casino games. The other 25%
